Cool Alien Costume Ideas

Black Alien

You can use a hockey helmet for a large head. Glue some black foam on the helmet to make the head even bigger. For the metal jaw, draw the pointed teeth on a silver sheet in a zigzag manner and cut them out. Stick the jaw to the helmet to show how scary the alien is with such sharp teeth. You can use a black plastic pipe. In case you can’t find one, paint the pipe black. Cut a piece of it and attach it to a black shirt, making it the tail of the alien. Cut another piece, bend it into a circle, join the ends, and attach it to the helmet with cable ties. It will be a circle, halo-like antenna of the alien. Wear black pants and black shoes, and your costume is ready.

Wear a pink dress. Cut out rainbow logos and attach them to the shoulders or wherever you want on the dress. The most fun part about this costume is its mask. Take a piece of plastic and cut it out in a circle of your face’s size. Make two small holes on each side of the plastic mask, and tie the knots of the string to each. You can wear the mask easily then. Cut out triangle-shaped eyes on it and cover it with a black colored transparent sheet to have clear vision. Paint the plastic mask white. Do enough coats of the paint that it looks thick. Make two dots in the center to show the nose with a marker. Cut a little below the nose to show the mouth. Wear black gloves and your Rainbow “alien costume” is ready.
